Sorry About That

Occaisionally I get comments. Yep, even here in the hinterland of the blogosphere some people feel compelled to drop by and leave their opinion. Most of it is appreciated which is why I don't make people jump through hoops to comment (JollyRoger, I still can't get through your spam blocker!).

Every once in a while (okay, twice) I get comment spam. I've left them both up. One was about a 9/11 conspiracy, I think everyone got that one, very entertaining.

Yesterday I heard from Jack Army. He says he's in Iraq but his profile says Hawaii. Anyway, his comment was all about how the Iraqi people want us to stay and he really seems to believe that we are fighting them over there so we don't fight them over here. He also wants to be a leader and a follower. Hmmm.

What we are doing is making them angry and they want us out. even if they have to watch us being blown to smithereens. Just leave is the message they're sending. By a wide majority. What's so sad about all this is that there numbers match ours. Over sixty percent want the US troops out of Iraq. Hopefully somebody will pay more attention to their wishes than they do ours, but I doubt it.

Sorry Jack, you need to get out of the sun. Wherever you are. Because you haven't been talking and listening to the right people.

Rest in peace Mr. Altman. I enjoyed M*A*S*H very much, the scenes with Bobby Troup were what got me through my time in the Army. I also enjoyed The Player. I worked for comedy development at Universal at the time and found the pitch scenes to be spot on. Thank you.


  1. Deb,

    How very strange. E-Mail me and I'll see what I can do to work around it.
